The subject that I am interested in researching is any story that include stones. When I saw the stones with the petroglyphs it reminded me of the Moai faces in the middle East. I have always wondered about the stories and reasoning behind the process of making those great mysteries. Another architectural wonder, that is very similar, is the ancient Stonehenge in England. The Stonehenge consists of a ring of standing stones that seem to have no real use, but has been a topic of debate recently. Since it is such a mystery, many people are interested in the different reasoning and connections between very different concepts.
The questions that I hope to answer with my project is what connections could be made between different stories with the topic of stones. Not just being confined to the idea of stones as in rocks, but also precious stones and jewels. Some of the stories that I could include are; the story of Medusa, stone soup, etc. The connections between different architectural wonders, myths, and fairy tales will add a new concept to the museum that will hopefully leave an impression on the viewer.
